Puzzle of You by Leah Mercer

puzzle of you

Charlotte wakes up in hospital with no recollection of how she got there. She sees her husband David, who she recognises. David keeps referring to their daughter, and there’s a little girl called Annabelle who keeps calling her Mummy. But Charlotte doesn’t have a daughter, she’s focused on her career and she never wanted children. Or did she?

It took a some effort to get past Charlotte’s simple acceptance of everything she didn’t remember. I’ve no recollection of ever wanting or having a daughter? Ah sure I’ll just go along with it until I remember. Surely that’s something you might question. I don’t work any more at the job I love, I stay at home all day with the daughter I know nothing about? Grand, I’ll just keep doing that until I remember. Again, maybe that’s something you might mention to your husband.

I enjoyed this book when I was reading it but it didn’t leave an impression on me. There are no fancy plot twists, it’s actually quite predictable in parts. It’s good as a light read, something to pick up that doesn’t require a lot of concentration.
